Joost Emmerik (°1979) is a garden and landscape architect. Joost searches for a serene simplicity, combining clear lines, robust materials and luscious planting into places that grow more exuberant over time.
A firm belief in the evoking power of gardens and a need for them in this day and age form the basis of his work. The garden as a world in itself, equal to the house. The garden as a room, not belonging to mankind, but to nature.
Starting August 2022, Joost has been appointed head of the Master’s programme in Landscape Architecture by the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture for a period of four years.
Joost is visiting lecturer at Technical University Delft and the Academy of Architecture Rotterdam and is a member of the Talent Building Committee of the Creative Industries Fund.
